Luminous Egress in Utah

With the adoption on the 2018 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025] as part of the Building Code 2018 of Utah, the installation of luminous egress path markings became required for all new and existing high-rise commercial building across the State. Effective as of July 2019, all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings must install luminous egress path marking products in all exit stairwells and landings.

Providing a Safe Illuminated Egress Path

Luminous egress path marking products safely guide patrons to the exit discharge, no matter the conditions. For hours after the power has failed, you can rely on ecoglo® products to glow brightly, cutting through smoke without casting shadows, to ensure the egress pathway stays highly visible. Our luminous egress path markings are non-toxic and non-radioactive, making ecoglo® the safest choice for your Utah building. 

Stair treads, handrails and obstructions within a critical egress stairway must remain easily visible in all conditions to provide a safe and timely evacuation. Photoluminescent stair nosings and signage allows all vital aspects of an egress pathway to be clearly marked and remain visible in all lighting conditions. Ecoglo®’s luminous egress path marking products will enhance the speed and safety of egress in your Utah facility, guiding occupants to safety.  

Our full package of luminous egress path marking solutions will bring your building up to all relevant building and fire codes.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Utah

Section 1025 provisions provide an additional level of safety to buildings’ egress paths by requiring the installation of photoluminescent or self-illuminating marking systems that do not require electrical power and the associated wiring and circuits. This means that even if a building’s power supply fails to operate, photoluminescent egress markings ensures occupants can safely egress a building via exit stairways. This is especially necessary in high-rise buildings, which feature a greater anticipated occupant load and occupants which way not be familiar with the emergency exit path.
